Itoi's Webcam:

Shigesato Itoi, creator of the Mother games, has a webcam set up in his office building's meeting/break room. An auto-updating feed can be seen here. Most of the time, there's no one in the room and nothing especially interesting happens, but every once in a while, Itoi will stick a few Mother-related things in front of the cam. In October 2005, a very rare figure of Mr. Saturn appeared on camera and led many to believe that a Mother 3 announcement was on the way soon. As it turns out, we were right. Not long after, it was announced that Mother 3 would be released in Japan in 2006.

Below are some of the most interesting captures that were saved from August 2006 to present.

Incognito Saturn and Mother 3+:

Incognito Saturn suddenly appeared on camera on August 23, 2006 and disappeared on August 30, 2006. During that time, he gradually made his way around the room.

An advertisement for the Mother 3+ CD and the Incognito Saturn strap that came with preordering appeared on September 22, 2006 and disappeared on November 16, 2006. It, too, has made its way around the room.

There have been other sightings now and then, however:
